About the Event
Experience the enchanting melodies of classical music as you attend the highly‐anticipated concert featuring compositions by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev. This remarkable event will take place at Milan's revered Auditorium Fondazione Cariplo, a venue known worldwide for its exceptional performances.
During this concert, you will have the opportunity to compare and appreciate two ballets created by these renowned composers. Tchaikovsky, celebrated for his mastery in ballet music through timeless works like Swan Lake, Eugene Onegin, and The Nutcracker, showcases his unparalleled skill and artistry. On the other hand, Sergei Prokofiev, another Russian genius, brings a unique perspective to ballet with his first composition in this genre, Chout, or the Story of the Buffoon. This ballet was created at the request of Djagilev, a prominent figure in the arts, who was inspired by a collection of Russian folk legends brought back from Stravinsky's recent trip to Russia. Djagilev then presented the legends to Prokofiev, and together they handpicked two stories for the musician to craft a libretto and compose a score. Djagilev emphasized the importance of maintaining an authentic Russian essence in this new opera.
